Description

Mint State 1886 Three Dollar
1,000 Pieces Struck

1886 $3 MS60 NGC. The end was near for the three dollar gold denomination when this 1886 issue was struck, in the amount of a stingy 1,000 pieces. Full mint luster remains on this orange-gold piece, which has far more eye appeal than might be expected for the grade. Chatter and hairlines in the fields, rather than blatant abrasions, account for the grade, although a small patch of shallow scrapes appear on the reverse to the left of the date. The first 8 in the date is somewhat softly struck, as is the bowknot below.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25N9, PCGS# 8008)
